Silent Retriever

Sometimes you come across something that you just bury your forehead in your hands and go “why didn’t I think of that?”  This is one of those items!  I know anyone that has ever hunted from a tree stand has dropped something from the top and have to decide whether or not to leave it at the base or climb down and get it.  The Silent Retriever eliminates that decision.  A simple tool with enough grappling hooks to attach itself to whatever you lost, it can be lowered from the stand by its attached cord and brought back up to your waiting hands.  It comes packaged in a small container that takes up virtually no room in your pack, weighs next to nothing, and comes in a variety of colors (I like the orange myself so I can see the Retriever and maneuver it to what I dropped).  No more worrying about that phantom gust of wind that took your hat off your head, the Silent Retriever is there to save the day.  Don’t ask me what to do if you forget to tie the cord to the Silent Retriever to your stand and accidently drop it as well though.
